Thank you so much for being here!
I'm a self-published author of four novels (and another one complete, but in the hands of potential agents). My books range from contemporary romance to romantic suspense to dark and gritty. My books won't be for everyone. I consider myself an "outside-the-box" writer, and I don't shy away from real life struggle, controversial subjects, or raw human emotion. I believe every love story is worth writing, no matter how messy it might be.
My dark romance novel, "Still Beating", became a bestseller on Amazon in three separate categories, and I'm pathetically grateful.
Did I always want to be a writer? Yes. Did I always believe I could be? Nope. I started writing as a young child with cheesy poems and terrible romance stories scribbled onto college ruled notebook paper. Then I delved into fanfiction (Buffy/Spike is the OTP, y'all), and I give a lot of credit to the Buffyverse writing staff for inspiring me with their emotive writing style, wit, and humor. I also recall devouring historical romance novels during my teen years, holing myself up in my bedroom for 12+ hours a day, and losing myself in the love stories.
It took me thirty-four years to finally take action and pursue my dreams. The time will pass anyway—make sure you're doing what you love. Make it count.
Happy reading, friends. ♡
